Sierra College, Sierra STEM Collaborative

The Sierra STEM Collaborative focuses on strengthening connections between secondary and postsecondary educators to encourage more STEM enrollment. It focuses on the career pathways of manufacturing & product development, and engineering & design. Project based learning is emphasized in these areas. The collaborative funds faculty and teacher externships with industry partners and provides professional development opportunities to improve technical skills and knowledge. For feeder middle and high schools, the collaborative provides career exploration software to promote STEM education and careers, disseminates career and college information through printed resources and presentations, and hosts tours of the college’s STEM programs.
